Where to plant new Lavender plants?

Cumberland Mtns, TN(Zone 6b)

I know it's really late for this season, but I just had to buy 9 or 10 lavender plants. but I am really committed to giving these guys a fighting chance for this season. I'm ready to babysit because I wanted them so badly.

My question is how should I lay these all out? Should I keep the same kinds together or put tall ones in the back no matter what they are? some are 2 of a kind, theres also 3 of a kind on another one or two.

would you make a lavender only flower bed or would you mix them in with other beds already in progress?

I have a new mantis =). ... I'm just having too many undecided moments

help :(

My friend and neighbor just cleared an area about 20' x 10' to plant lavender. Its on the hill side and gets alot of morning sun. She has her other lavender in a kind of rock garden. That on is doing wonderful. She has two different types, not sure which is which, but one is almost white. It is the most fragrant lavender I have ever sniffed. They are both in thier own beds.

I guess there's no wrong place, I probably should have stuck to getting all the same of what's best for my area (spanish lavender), but I had to get some of the BlueCushion, Hidcote, and what she called Lavender Lavance; I should look those up, but sounds French to me.

Today I'm ready to split them up in diff beds. oh well. there's always next year =)

Good drainage is very important. They don't tolerate poor drainage or standing water.

Good point LindaTX8. I forgot that they hate to have their feet standing in water for too long.

I planted several herbs and a few other flowers on the same day, so if it was within range of the water hose, I was gently watering those frequently ... its my fault.

I wonder if I dug them up and replanted correctly if they could still survive? I think I answered my own question! ^_^

Good for you! I thought I saw one teeny bloom when I walked the dog.

I just couldn't make up my mind at the time... it was one of those days. LOL, weeks. I planted like kinds in different spots of the yard. Now I have 4 lavender places to add to.

I took this on 7/31 but I keep meaning to check it's name.

It has new growth, but these were only 4" pots when i ordered them, so I'm not expecting blooms this year.

I should check on fertilizer now that I have my new Herb book =) ^_^ ^_^
